Fancy Nancy

Today was Fancy Nancy Day at dance. You guys, it is the cutest thing in the whole world watching these girls dress up and dance around.
(They have glass now in the windows so every picture I took had glare and reflections. Oh well. They let you take pictures after in the studio so that is nice).



Despicable Me 2

One more thing crossed off our bucket list! We went on Saturday--it was a great movie. Those minions are hilarious.

Dance

Adalynn has a few friends that attend a dance studio here and I have been wanting to sign her up for a while, so when I saw a living social deal, I grabbed it. Last Monday was her first day. It is really cute. They have a story at the end and let the girls dress up and dance. This week's theme was Strawberry Shortcake. Adalynn loved it.
 

Utah

Here are my pictures from our trip to Utah. It has been the highlight of our summer thus far. We left Tuesday and stayed until Sunday.
 
The kids played and played and played. They loved being outside with their cousins. They loved Michelle and Justin's backyard!
We just saw him and looks so much older already.
We went to Scheels one day. It is one ginormous sporting goods store with a Ferris wheel.
Addie was freaked out by the Ferris wheel at first, but by the time she made it around once, she was okay.
Haha. Sean.
More hanging out in the backyard.
Uncle Justin is so fun!
The next day was the Fourth of July.
Kinda crazy, but we bought a car!! Jared's car was beyond repair and we have been wanting something bigger for a while. I was not planning on getting one while we were there, but it just happened. I love it so much. The extra room is awesome.
We did fireworks in front of the house. It was laid back and so much fun.
Friday, we went to Lehi to get some pictures taken and then drove down to Provo to drive around and reminisce. We also had to visit Aunt Liz.
That night Michelle and Justin planned to have smores for the kids and have a campout. It was what my kids have been really excited about for a while.
Meet my nephew Austin! Is he not just precious! I loved holding and snuggling him--he is at that awesome age where he will totally smile at you and let you hold him and fall asleep. We all love him.
Saturday was my niece Lexi's birthday so after breakfast we went to the park and then after that we went swimming.
We left Sunday. We stopped in Scipio to see the animals. It is always a nice break from driving.

Lyla turns two

Lyla had her second birthday June 28th. She still has no idea what is going on, so we didn't make a huge deal about it. She woke up to waffles and ice cream. Devin and Adalynn insisted.
Then we talked about what Lyla wanted to do on her special day. We all agreed her favorite thing to do was see the dogs and cats at Petsmart. So we did that. If Jared weren't such a scrooge, we would have come home with an animal.
We did a little photoshoot in the front room.
She loved every second of it. Ha! 
After we took the pictures the kids took all the balloons off the wall and let her play in them
Then it was time for presents. Uncle Josh was here and got her this cute sock monkey
She also got a bag of m & m's (her favorite present), a bubble machine, and a travel aquadoodle. Devin can be such a sweet heart when he wants to.
Then it was cake and ice cream time.
A video of her playing in the balloons.
